Whilst we all eagerly await the sunshine we ordered back in January to arrive, let's take a look at what one of London's finest 5 Star hotels are doing to bolster their offering and entice us to spend endless hours enjoying their hospitality with bars, restaurants and most importantly a stunning Mediterranean terrace!
A MEDITERRANEAN FLAIR
"As languid London summer evenings stretch before us, step into our secluded courtyard and feel transported to the Mediterranean. Sit among fragrant lemon trees and sip cool drinks as scents of lavender and jasmine drift on the tranquil air.
And when you are ready to order, André Garrett's menu of seafood, raw salads and wood-fired pizzas will complete your culinary journey from the heart of London to a Mediterranean terrace.
WHERE DO WE SIGN UP??
Corinthia London is delighted to announce that their courtyard restaurant - The Garden - has reopened!
Designed by David Collins Studio, Corinthia’s secluded courtyard will be transformed into a Mediterranean garden with lemon and olive trees, herbs and bougainvillea. Scents of lavender and jasmine will reawaken memories of past visits to favourite European holiday destinations. The signature Mediterranean menu created by Executive Chef André Garrett will feature seafood crudi, salads, and pizzas baked to order in a wood-fired oven. Dishes will include Yellowtail tartare with apple, lemon and coriander; Fritto misto; Lobster linguine with lemon, cherry tomatoes and basil; and Grilled brill with fennel and sparkling wine, as well as oven-baked dishes such as ‘Nduja and olive pizza; and Baked gnocchi with hazelnut and Parmesan. Refreshing desserts will include Fraises des bois with whipped vanilla crème Chantilly; and Frozen berries with white chocolate sauce.
To complement the idyllic setting, guests will be able to choose from a selection of rosé wines including Whispering Angel, Domaines Ott, Miraval, and Minuty.
“Fond recollections of summer holidays seem but a distant memory. Our Mediterranean garden will offer the chance to enjoy much-loved dishes from Europe surrounded by fragrant foliage,” enthused Thomas Kochs, Corinthia London’s Managing Director. “With travel restrictions in place, we hope that The Garden will offer a cure for wanderlust. An alfresco lunch with a glass of refreshing, pale rosé is the perfect way to enjoy the spring and summer months and we are delighted to have partnered with Domaines Ott with a delectable range of wines.”
The Garden alfresco restaurant will be open daily, and the Mediterranean menu will be available from Noon until 11pm. Prices will range from £11 for starters, from £24 for main courses, and desserts from £10. Note that Corinthia London, and The Garden, will constantly monitor any updates to government guidelines re Covid-19. The hotel and its other restaurants (The Northall, Kerridge’s Bar & Grill, The Crystal Moon Lounge), bars (Bassoon, The Northall), and bedrooms will open fully from 17 May 2021.
